Drive New Customers in a Highly Competitive Industry
Despite its unique position in the market, Papa Murphy’s is seeing increased competition and changing consumer preferences with their target audience of household food decision makers. As the company approached its most critical fall and winter sales seasons, they set sights on driving new customers – and they needed it done fast.
Theorem took over digital and traditional media for Papa Murphy’s in 2019 with the goal of growing incremental sales in the Portland/SW Washington market.
Reshaping Media Mix to Grow Incremental Customers
Our strategy for increasing sales focused on shifting their media mix to prioritize audience expansion by broadening reach (over frequency) and tapping into younger demographics of potential customers.
This involved a measured shift away from the company’s heavy traditional mix, toward testing new, more efficient digital platforms. In order to accomplish this quickly, we developed a go-to-market testing plan that yielded immediate sales lift within the first 90-days, while mitigating risk during peak season for Papa Murphy’s.
